I’m not a blogger by nature. In fact, the word “blogger” conjures, in my mind at least, images of pompous liberal teens and twenty-somethings with a lot to say but nothing to offer. This IS 2014, however, and blogging is a part of the business. So allow this to serve as an introduction:
Hi. I’m Joe Rubas, and I write. I don’t like to restrict myself to one genre, I write what comes to me, but, let’s face it, 99% of my stuff is horror, with some crime, mystery, and nonfiction thrown in for good measure. I don’t like that gory torture porn crap…give me Poe over Saw any day. I live in the great state of Florida (I’m from Virginia, which I still consider home) with my wife-to-be, Brenda, and our amazing son, Jeremy, who is nine months old at this writing. I enjoy reading, going to the beach, and listening to music. My favorite bands are Krokus, AC/DC, CCR, Tommy James…I like just about everything recorded between 1955 and 1990. I don’t really like today’s crap, though there are a few exceptions (I’m looking at you, Foxy Shazam).
My collection, After Midnight, is set to be published in a few days by my wonderful publisher, Tickety Boo Press. I have some other stuff in the works as well, so…watch out.
